Vintage Cubano - American trains in Cuba

Order it now

From 1993 to 2005 writer and photographer Adolf Hungrywolf spent 18 months in Cuba documenting that island nation's "transportation time warp." He recorded hundreds of  narrow- and standard-gauge locomotives - most of them American-built - and dozens of American autos from the 1950s, 40s, 30s, and even the 20s.
   This 320-page, all-color book brings Cuba's railroads, old cars, and people to life. With over 1,000 images - including historic photos - lengthy journal entries, and comprehensive captions, the author paints a complex and interesting picture.

 

Book Reviews

 From The Continental Modeller, Feb 2013:
     "With an unusual and possibly unique status as visitor, accepted friend, and sometime resident, the author was able to photograph and record a complex and interesting country, often with access not accorded the fleeting tourist."

NG&SL Gazette, 11/2012:
"This is a beautifully done book written by an author who loves Cuba and its trains, automobiles, and people.  It is printed on good quality paper with 541 color photos, 115 vintage archive photos, 13 maps, and 41 pieces of art."
